Art Journey #3 Romance



Apologies....on a bit of a catch up.

Over the next few days I'll post some of what should have already been posted, but for all sorts of reasons over the past fortnight (past two weeks for those not used to that expression) my pc and life online has had to wait its turn as real life stood its ground.

This card is my contribution for the third Art Journey Challenge theme which this month is Romance. Simply put together by using a stencil and sponge to create the sultry background alongside some basic black stamping and a touch of coloured pencil. The 123 numbers are available from Crafty Individuals. I added a gem to the rose for a bit of glam!




Stamps used are:
Art Journey Roses
Art Journey Dance
both available from HERE

There's also a gift certificate to be won, all you have to do is to upload your Romance artwork (using mainly Art Journey stamps...see details on the blog )onto the Art Journey Challenge post and keep those fingers crossed!
